Dacia has updated the Dacia Duster Commercial's logo, bringing it in line with its other models. Rather than the traditional grille, the new logo features an interlocking "D" and "C" to create a smoother surface. The old grille had a chrome surround, while the new one has white-striped paneling. There are no Dacia badges or "Duster" decals on the back of this model, which is a departure from the previous model. Flat-black plastic has replaced the red paneling on the rear lights as well.
Prices have risen across the Dacia Duster Commercial line, as they have for many other mainstream vehicles. One thousand dollars more expensive than before, the Dacia Duster Commercial entry-level model now costs $13,900 (before VAT).
Manufacturing has been compelled to raise prices to maintain profit margins due to rising raw-material costs, soaring energy prices, and supply-chain difficulties.
Despite a price increase, the Dacia Duster Commercial remains one of the most affordable 4x4 commercial SUVs, costing less than half as much as the Toyota Land Cruiser Commercial.
The Suzuki Jimny Commercial competitor is profoundly unchanged elsewhere, with a large load bed and a maximum payload of up to 503 kg.
The lineup of engines, which includes 88-and 148-horsepower petrol engines and a 113-horsepower diesel with four-wheel drive, has not changed. There's also a two-clutch automatic transmission to choose from.
Essential and Expression are the two trims available. The former has a DAB radio, steel wheels, and LED daytime running lights in the shape of a Y. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are added to the 8.0-inch touchscreen in the Expression, which also includes a leather steering wheel and upgraded interior upholstery.
According to the company, the Dacia Sandero hatchback and the Dacia Jogger MPV are the only Dacia models that have yet to receive commercial versions. Still, the Dacia Duster Pick-up truck is more expensive than the Duster Commercial model.
Unlike the Dacia Sandero Stepway hatchback, the Dacia Jogger does not meet N1 homologation requirements for light goods vehicles.
